    Lots to see and do
    This area has developed significantly over the many years wehave been coming here and you see something new every time. In truth, it is a little highbrow for us and the designer shops don’t really appeal. That said, the views are stunning and just being by the water on the edge of the city is fantastic. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as you can walk and walk around this area as there’s just so much to see. Much of it is chargeable, but there’s also lots available where you don’t have to pay but still get some great entertainment.

    The must to see and visit in Singapore
    Nice to see the panorama view at this area. The place crowed with tourists and there are many good restaurants, coffee shop, cafe, and hawkers a long the bay. The daytime and night time view are difference mood and tone but both of them are very good to see and admire it. At 8.00 and 9.00 p.m. has shown light and sound at the place. You will feel differene if you sit in the difference corner. Each corner give you difference mood. DON'T forget to take a photo with the Merlion, the Mascot of Singapore there. Enjoy the trip.

    Don’t miss!
    Singapore has much history in this area and it continues to evolve. Beautiful place to enjoy as you can take a river cruise, bungee jump, walk, or bicycle! And for all you Apple fans, there’s even an Apple Store here. Very popular area, night and day.

    Amazing time at Marina Bay
    It is an amazing experience in Singapore at Marina Bay. The view is incredible especially at sunset and night. You can walk or jog around the bridge and have a good and variety food choices inside the mall. The river is there since many years ago but never bored to visit and experiences many new things around. Bravo!

    Amazing view
    Always bring umbrella every time you visit especially during summer. We went there first last July 2017 at the top of Marina Bay for the view of Singapore at Night. Then another visit last September 2022. Its always nice to explore the area with bike.

    Lots To Look At
    There are lots of iconic buildings to look at, including the quirky Marina Bay Sands complex. Thre's a building shaped like an opening lotus. There's a huge merlion spouting water into the bay. It's surrounded by walkways with bars & restaurants. It's impressive, but it's modern & lacks any warmth or soul.

    Eyecatching
    We visited Marina Bay in May 2023. We took a walk around the perimeter and saw the Merlion. We visited Marina Bay Sands and walked through the shopping areas before heading through to Gardens by the Bay. Marina Bay is quite impressive and relaxing to walk around. Very modern, luxurious and pristine. Definitely a must-see!

    Has it all!
    There is a lot going on at Marina Bay. An enormous mall, casino, restaurants, and a great light show on the bay at night. IT’s a bit overwhelming at first, but worth taking a look for sure.

    Best enjoyed at sunset
    In the evening take some time to stroll along the Marina Bay...the breezy evenings make more bearable visiting this stunning part of the city. And there are plenty of activities that will make the time fly. From outdoor concerts to light/water shows...surely you'll find something to entertain yourself.

    A must in Singapore
    This area is a must in the city of Singapore. Beautifully located on the water, you can take your time here, strolling along the waterfront, or hiring a bike. Lovely vistas. You will find many food outlets, coffee shops and restaurants along the way. Admire the stunning architecture and cool off in the glamorous Marina Bay Sands mall.

Probably one of the most spectacular and beautiful bays in the world. With two unusual bridges each side. The Marina Bay Sands Hotel looks spectacular. This area is especially beautiful at night time with all the lights on the skyscrapers. The Spectra show is also held here at 8pm and 9pm

Beautiful but Singapore is very expensive and artificial. The locals, culturally, feel distant and reserved. Many places in the world which offer far more

Singapore has been very clever using the area for impressive features and using waterways to link areas - nothing is too far and the photo opportunities are endless !
I love seeing that Singapore has kept some of his history with the beautiful old buildings - great area

A must visit place in Singapore. Thousands of visitors throng this place everyday. The trio of three hotels is visible from here. It is the heart of the city and there are some eating outlets here which offer a variety of foods. A nice experience to be here.

Singapore has quite a dramatic skyline - perhaps the most iconic is the 57 story Marina Bay Sands. We chose a hotel with views of Singapore Bay and the Sands to enjoy this view - here are 4 of my favorite photos of this structure
